https://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/how-can-i-change-my-address-with-social-security-also-i-need-to-change-to-a-different-bank/
Q) How can I change my address with social security? Also I need to change to a different bank for my check to be sent. Can this be done on line?

A) According to the Social Security Administration website – If you get Social Security benefits (retirement, survivors, or disability) or are enrolled in Medicare, you can change your address online by using a my Social Security account. Go to the My Profile Tab on my Social Security.

This service is not currently available to people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or do not have a U.S. mailing address. However, if you are receiving SSI, you can still check your address we have on record via the My Profile Tab on my Social Security. https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/Article/3704/-How-can-I-change-my-address

Regarding changing your banking information – If you already receive benefits (retirement, survivors, or disability) and you have a bank account, you can start or update your direct deposit by using the My Profile Tab in my Social Security. In addition, you can decide when your change will take effect.

This service is not currently available for people who receive SSI or do not have a U.S. mailing address. However, if you are receiving SSI, you can still check the type of payment method we have on record via the My Profile Tab in my Social Security. https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/Article/3825/How-can-I-sign-up-for-or-change-direct-deposit-for-my-Social-Security-or-Supplemental-Security-Income-SSI-payments

https://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/is-it-possible-to-get-a-document-for-dds-to-receive-a-new-birth-certificate-license-is-expired-and-only-needs-to-be-renewed/
Q) Is it possible to get a document for DDS to receive a new birth certificate ? License is expired and only needs to be renewed.

A) To replace your birth certificate. Find the vital records office in the state where you were born. Check to find out if you can obtain a certified copy of your birth certificate without any identification and follow the instructions. A few states don’t require a government-issued photo ID, or accept other solutions like a sworn statement of your identity. Some states allow your mother or father whose name is on the birth certificate to submit a notarized letter with a copy of their photo ID.

Q) Need a earnings statement sent to me

A) Please call your local social security office or make the request online – You can get your personal Social Security Statement online by using your my Social Security account. If you don’t yet have an account, you can easily create one. Your online Statement gives you secure and convenient access to your earnings records. It also shows estimates for retirement, disability and survivors benefits you and your family may be eligible for.

To set up or use your account to get your online Social Security Statement, go to Sign In Or Create An Account.

We also mail paper Statements to workers age 60 and older three months before their birthday if they don’t receive Social Security benefits and don’t yet have a my Social Security account. Workers who don’t want to wait for their scheduled mailing can request their Social Security Statement by following these instructions. The Statement will arrive by mail in four to six weeks. https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/article/3709/how-can-i-get-a-social-security-statement-that-shows-a-record-of-my-earnings-and-an-estimate-of-my-future-benefits

https://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/i-recently-submitted-my-verification-form-for-medicare-part-b-when-can-i-expect-a-response/
Q) I recently submitted my verification form for Medicare Part B. When can I expect a response? I want to sign up for a BCBS MedAdvantage plan.

A) According to Medicaid – Your coverage start date depends on your birthday if both of these apply:

You sign up for Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance).
You sign up during the first 3 months of your Initial Enrollment Period.
Your coverage starts the first day of the month you turn 65, unless your birthday is on the first day of the month.

Note
You can sign up for free Part A (if you’re eligible) any time during or after your Initial Enrollment Period starts. If you sign up within 6 months of your 65th birthday, your coverage will start at one of these times:
The first day of the month you turn 65
The month before you turn 65 (if your birthday is the first of the month)
After that, you’re coverage start date will go back (retroactively) 6 months from when you sign up.
Example
Mr. Green’s 65th birthday is July 20, 2017. If he signs up for Medicare in April, May, or June, his coverage will start on July 1, 2017.
If your birthday is on the first day of the month, your coverage starts the first day of the prior month.

Example
Mr. Kim’s 65th birthday is July 1, 2017. If he signs up for Medicare in March, April, or May, his coverage will start on June 1, 2017.
When will my Medicare coverage start?

If you sign up for Part A (if you have to buy it) and/or Part B in this month: Your coverage starts:
The month you turn 65 1 month after you sign up
1 month after you turn 65 2 months after you sign up
2 months after you turn 65 3 months after you sign up
3 months after you turn 65 3 months after you sign up
During the January 1–March 31 General Enrollment Period July 1

https://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/i-want-to-file-a-w-4v-form-do-i-send-it-to-social-security-office/
Q) I want to file a W-4V form.

1.) Do I send it to:
SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE
2340 DREW STREET CLEARWATER, FL 33765

2.) Do I send it to anyone’s attention?

3.) How can I verify that it was received and filed?

A) According to the Social Security Administration – You can ask us to withhold federal taxes from your Social Security when you apply for benefits.

If you are already receiving benefits or if you want to change or stop your withholding, you’ll need a form W-4V from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

You can download the form, or call the IRS toll-free number 1-800-829-3676 and ask for Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call the IRS TTY number, 1-800-829-4059.)

When you complete the form, you will need to select the percentage of your monthly benefit amount you want withheld. You can have 7%, 10%, 15% or 25% of your monthly benefit withheld for taxes.

Note: Only these percentages can be withheld. Flat dollar amounts are not accepted.

If you want to know how much a particular percentage is equal to in dollars, call us at 1-800-772-1213. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.)
Sign the form and return it to your local Social Security office by mail or in person.

If you need more information

If you need more information about tax withholding, read IRS Publication 554, Tax Guide for Seniors, and Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits.

If you have questions about your tax liability or want to request a Form W-4V, you can also call the IRS at 1-800-829-3676 (TTY 1-800-829-4059). https://www.ssa.gov/planners/taxwithold.html

I am 60 yrs old and am getting a divorce and I cannot find another job to make ends meet. My husband left me in quite a bind financially. I am working as a waitress part time,at 30 hours every 2 weeks. I am wondering what I can do to keep where I live in my home.

Thank you; Piney S

A) If you’re looking for immediate or emergency help, your state’s human service or social service agency might be able to provide financial assistance or refer you to local community organizations. Benefits.gov is a free website that can help you determine which types of government assistance you might qualify for and how and where to apply. Using the Benefit Finder, answer questions about yourself and your needs to see if you’re eligible for programs to help you pay for food, health insurance, or other necessities. Check back with Benefits.gov in the future to see if you’re eligible for additional benefits after major life events and as new benefit programs become available. https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-finder#benefits&qc=cat_1

https://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/my-mom-recently-died-i-wanted-to-know-if-my-boys-would-be-allowed-to-get-her-ssi/
Q) My mom recently died and I wanted to know if my boys would be allowed to get her SSI she was in the process of getting paperwork together to adopt them they are 8.

A) IF the adoption process was complete before she died the adopted kids could get her social security benefits.

According to Social Security administration – Your child can get benefits if they’re your biological child, adopted child, or dependent stepchild. (Sometimes, your child could also be eligible for benefits on their grandparents’ earnings.) To get benefits, a child must have:
• A parent who’s disabled or retired and entitled to Social Security benefits; or
• A parent who died after having worked
long enough in a job where they paid Social
Security taxes.
The child must also be:
• Unmarried;
• Younger than age 18;
• 18-19 years old and a full-time student (no
higher than grade 12); or
• 18 or older and disabled. (The disability must
have started before age 22.)
What you’ll need when you apply for child’s benefits:
When you apply for benefits for your child, you’ll need the child’s birth certificate and the parent’s and child’s Social Security numbers. Depending on the type of benefit involved, other documents may be required. For example, if you’re applying for survivors benefits for the child, you’ll need to furnish proof of the parent’s death. If you’re applying for benefits for a disabled child, you’ll need to furnish medical evidence to prove the child’s disability. The Social Security representative who sees you will tell you what other documents you’ll need. https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10085.pdf
